  • Problem Solving 13 Saying something wrong If you say something wrong, acknowledge it, they may write it down. Questions you havent taught If they ask a question about something you have not taught them yet Tell them they are going to learn that in the next part of the lesson. This helps you keep to the correct order. Dont know the answer If you dont know the answer to a question say thats a good point, I will find out & get back to you. Dont make something up. You will loose your credibility & they wont believe anything else you say. Forgetting If you forget what to say repeat your last sentence. Be honest, What was I saying?. Give them something to do or take a break.
  • Slide 14
  • Problem Solving 14 One student answering all the questions If one person keeps answering all the questions, put your hand up & out to them & look at someone else. Talking students If someone is talking, stop, look at them, then carry on as normal Use names i.e. John what would you do if? The next person will sit up & wait for their name to be called. Dont address someone individually (by their name) if they are not keeping up. Let people know you dont miss a thing e.g. I saw how well you did that bandage. Fill in spare time with: Personal stories I remember when.. Get candidates to do a scenario/roll play
